Lake Bled

Gregorchicheva ulica 22, Bled, Upper Carniola, 4260

The Basics

Lake Bled is lovely to admire from any vantage point. Wander the paved path that circles the entire lakeshore, take a traditional pletna (wooden flat-bottom boat) ride to the island in the lake’s center (or rent a boat and row yourself), or tour the medieval Bled Castle perched on the cliffs above and enjoy panoramic views from the castle terrace. For the more adventurous, take a guided rafting trip down one of Bled’s emerald rivers, rappel down cascading waterfalls on a guided canyoning tour, or rent a bike and explore the surrounding countryside. Other popular activities in summer include swimming, kayaking, fishing, and stand-up paddleboarding.

Guided tours to Lake Bled depart from cities such as Ljubljana, Piran, Koper, Zagreb (Croatia), and Trieste (Italy). Some tours include a stop at Postojna Caves.

Without a doubt, do this tour!
What an amazing day! The guide and other guests were great company, but the real star was the Slovenian sites! I was awestruck by the beauty of each stop and how different it was from each of the other ones. It was the perfect way to spend the day!

Ljubljana and Bled Lake - small group - day tour from Zagreb
Dino is an awesome tour guide through and through, in regards to all things both Croatia and Slovenia! It was a nice day going through part of a very clean and green country. Lake Bled is simply stunning. Happy I did a day trip tour to Slovenia from Zagreb and even happier that Dino was our leader!

Lake Bled and Bohinj - Beyond the Alpine Lakes from Ljubljana
Beautiful Lake Bled. Poor weather prevented a full lake experience but what we did see was spectacular. Driver/guide very knowledgeable but without a microphone, sometimes hard to hear him.

Lake Bled and Ljubljana Tour from Trieste
Can't tell you how much we enjoyed this day trip to Slovenia! Dejan was superb! A native of Slovenia, he provided most interesting information about his country and history. He picked us up on schedule at the hotel, and has a very comfortable van. Took us to Lake Bled and let us explore it for an hour, and then drove us to Llubjana to enjoy lunch and walk the city. Slovenia is a beautiful country, and we would highly recommend visiting if you are in Trieste. Be sure and use KoporTours!

Private Tour: Ljubljana and Lake Bled Day Trip from Zagreb
Great tour! We spent a few hours at Lake Bled, which gave us time to enjoy a boat ride to the island and back. Ella recommended the Cream Cake after that and she was right! Then to Ljubljana, a quaint city. Really liked the main square, though a popup rain shower (that never showed up on weather app) shortened our time in town. Ella shared so much great info about the region and our driver (can’t spell his name) was great too. We highly recommend this trip.

Lake Bled Paragliding
No matter what you do in Bled, you MUST do this activity. The scenery is out of a romance novel. The crew was very professional and safety at the forefront of their minds. They were patient and put all of us at ease before taking the leap. It was such a magical experience that will follow me the rest of my days.

The Best of Slovenia, Bled lake, Postojna cave and Ljubljana
If we could give more than 5 stars we would award 11 stars. Absolutely perfect trip from the unreal cave experience, to the gorgeous castle on a pristine lake, to a picture perfect city. Robert, our guide, created an easy and fun experience all day.
